Re: Season 2018/2019

First game is going to be interesting. Derby have made some useful signings on paper - Jozefzoon following Mount and Wilson.

They're either going to rip teams apart or be very lightweight and bullied I think. Still our FBs likely to have their hands full

Re: RUMOUR - George Evans to Sunderland

yep just seen the chronicle article. Very dubious about anything they say, but think 250k would be less than I'd want/expect for him.

500-750k would be nearer the mark

Re: RUMOUR - George Evans to Sunderland

I think he influences games by being steady and "beige" and doing the low profile but necessary stuff. but he just doesn't do it very well. He isnt someone who you don't notice as he is doing his job so well, because we kept getting ripped apart in our midfield whenever he (or anyone else...

Re: RUMOUR - George Evans to Sunderland

I doubt its 250k. Think that was something Sunderland threw about early doors He just hasn't been good enough for us. Very beige and very rarely influences a game. On paper he should have potential etc, but he has been with us 2.5 years now and not shown a great deal. From what I've seen of Rinomhot...

Re: The Local Journo Thread

Have to say the pointing people to his twitter feed, then writing crap about love island etc isn’t particularly professional Anyway bit bored of the whole debate now. Bit like the team hoping to see better all round this year - CFs stuff around the preseason and presser were pretty good, hopefully t...

Re: Sam Baldock

Baldock is small and so is McNulty. Our other likely attacking outlets like Barrow, Aluko, Swift and most of all Kelly are hardly giants. Unless we start with Bodvarsson we will carry no aerial threat at all and with little physical presence in the box. Swift isn’t particularly small though obvious...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

There will be a new kit, a small number of supporters were at the club a week or so ago doing some stuff for the launch. It should be released in the days leading up to the Palace game. Take it this was a South Stand only affair? Haha. This club is turning into a shambles. Soon it'll be members onl...

Re: George Evans

Seriously people THEY WOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN HIM TO BLOODY AUSTRIA IF TALKS ARE TAKING PLACE. All the people claiming a fee is agreed. Its nonsense :lol: Sunderland may have approached us; but for the figures being quoted we could loan him out for that amount :lol: They would still take him if a few ...

Re: The Local Journo Thread

i actually quite like the site. Its pretty readable and easy to navigate. And JLow has quietly become quite decent.

Noted on Fulham and Watford - yep that is a nice touch. I suppose at least with Watford there, we aren't the only non-London club on it

Re: Sam Baldock

PC has confirmed we are close to signing someone - presuming this is Baldock

"It's not done yet, but we're working towards it," he told BBC Radio Berkshire during the club's pre-season training camp in Austria.

"And hopefully we'll have positive news very soon."

Re: SPECULATION - MOHAMED EISA

I’m not sure Villa would accept a cut price for Kodija and his wages would be sky high

Be interesting to see where Eisa goes, but it won’t be here

Seems Reading have their own page, despite clearly not being in London.

Re: Summer Transfers

do agree Victor to an extent, and I think Lampard has pulled off a great coup getting those two in. Pretty much every other club in the division would have happily taken either I do wonder how often these players actually end up a success though. Tammy Abraham obviously, but for every one of him, th...

Re: Sam Baldock

yeah for me, there were glaring weakness in DCM, FB and up front. PC has filled these gaps with solid performers (if Baldock comes, we are still assuming solely on one journo's tweet It might just be that I'm a little over optimistic as he has pretty much done exactly what I think he should have don...

PC clearly sees him as someone that can play the cf role. Did he score a few at Sochaux last season? Tbh I thought our days of playing wingers up top were over :( you're a barrel of laughs at the moment CR :lol: He'll only play CF if he is playing the CF role well. He is much bigger and stronger th...

get real, he is going. The Sunderland chairman has tweeted that the bid has been accepted, and the Sunderland Echo says this:

The bid for Evans has been accepted, with the player expected to undergo a medical once he returns from Reading's pre-season tour in Austria.
